I saw Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy and I liked it. I love Will Ferrell and some of the other goons in the film so there were several funny parts even though the movie was uneven on the whole and very weak at times.
Nevertheless, there were 3 moments from the trailer which I IMMEDIATELY recognized as absent from the film:
1) Ron screaming "LET'S MAKE A BABY" while wrestling with Christina Applegate
2) Ron asking Chris Parnell how things are going at the pool party, Parnell telling Ron he'll never see his kids again, and Ron replying "FANTASTIC"
3) Oops, I'm blanking right now and can't think of it but I remember there was a third one last night.
Anyway, WHY do the studios do this ? Anchorman has plenty of deadwood in it, so why cut some of the stuff which was funny enough for the trailer but *not* funny enough for the movie ?
This is not the first time I've noticed this in the movie business.
